Question about Cars & Trucks

ABS light stays on at all times.

This one has me stumped.... ABS light came on one morning when driving my kids to school. When I came out and restarted, light came on for about 15 seconds and went off and remained off during the drive home. Came back on a little while later when my wife was driving, and has been on ever since. I first thought maybe there was debris in a sensor ring, as we had just returned from a trip up north through lots of road-salt. Pulled all 4 wheels, checked all sensors and connections, and even replaced rear pads since they were getting thin. Pulled the battery for about 30 minutes and drove for a while but the light will not go away. Funniest thing is, the anti-lock brakes work perfectly.... motor engages, pedal pulsates, and wheels chirp just as they are supposed to do. Has anyone run into this before? And I have been a Ford Master Tech since 1991, so please do not ask if I checked the fluid or try to explain the principles of how ABS operates. LOL

I would still be suspect of the ABS module. Had the same thing happen on an 01 Tahoe.

Search the web for an ABS repair facility located in Russia, IA. They repair the module for $150.00 and give a 5 year warranty, which you can't get from the factory.
And, their website has troubleshooting guides to help you determine if for certain the module is bad or has a probelm.

You can remove the module and continue to drive the vehicle. Their turn around is as they state, and once I had them make the repiars, my Tahoe has been up and running great!

SOURCE: Anti-lock brakes come on just before I stop.

It might be a ALB sensor. Did you check to see if the sensor is operational? Its the cheapest place to check.

It sounds like you might be having a problem with your Electronic control module. Are the only codes coming up just for the sensor? Have you recently cleaned your engine or driven in very wet weather? If so, water could have gotten into your connections at the modules and causing odd codes. I hope this helps. Jay

SOURCE: pulsation in brake pedal and rear end hops during braking

What happens is if you have a bad front wheel bearing when you brake that wheel will turn in or out,when this happens it throws the four wheel alignment out and since this is a solid rear axle,it's forcing it to flex on the suspension,wich could cause the rear tires to bite on the outside edge of one tire and the inside edge of the other,thats one possible the other would be that the rear brakes are are not slowing the wheels evenly causing the same issue.I saw this problem with a bad front wheel bearing on a Nissan Pathfinder but not as pronouced due to the independent rear suspension. Check the front wheel bearings,which of course will mean getting the calipers off the rotors,and then check for any movement in the rotor,if there is check the hub nut,if it's loose tighten it and check for play in the rotor if there is still play that's going to be caused by a bad bearing.You can check the braking in the rear with a simple spring scale(like the ones used for fishing),with the wheels removed have someone apply enough pedal pressure to just engage the brakes but still allow movement attach the scale hook to a wheel stud and pull until it starts to move and note how many pounds of pressure it takes to move the hub.If it's uneven chech your adjusters and even them if needed and then retest,if still uneven you'll need to bleed them again.As far as the dark black substance in the fluid I would say you may gotten a contaminent in the fluid.Brake fluid gets kind of a rusty reddish residue when it breaks down.If I missed anything or you need clarification don't hesitate to ask I'm home all day.Hope this helps solve your problem.

that has four wheel anti lock so your gonna need to either take all them off and clean ends it may correct the problem but more than likely your gonna have to take to a large shop that has abs computer to find which sensor is bad then correct the problem

ABS light on dash stays on


Didn't expect to see another question after answering the other one

May be best to part with it

To rebuild a trans on a 96 was a bad decision,it is too old

You bought many former owners problems

A vehicle like that is for a person like me with 50 years
experience & just a hobby & a challange to work on &
learn from,not a daily driver

The ABS is part of the braking systems & another thing
that needs to be diagnosed & resolved

Certainly not a vehicle to safely transport your children in

Sorry-- but I have to be honest & practical here & pay the price
which I do often.

Abs and service light on constant,


I have a 1998 Renault Laguna 2.2DTi and on occasion the ABS warning light comes on. The reason for it is nothing to do with the ABS but the seat belt pretensioner. Where the seat belt clips in, there is a plastic moulding around the seat belt restraint, if you put your hand inbetween the seat cushion and the moulding you will feel various cables - if you play about with them, the warning light will go out!
